- As an introduction to the works of Michael Finley, a business writer on the
technology of the future, see his piece on Alvin Toffler

writings and take the techno-personality test to see what your technological
personality is like. After you answer a series of questions, the test will grade

take the test with a pencil and paper. It is not live and online yet.
